The author is Suzanne Collins and the book was published on September 1 And falling is keep nd of Viollent.
It was almost "scary" in some parts but over all, I really liked this book, and I agree with lollypopies, that was my favorite part too!!! It adds a lot of suspense and drama. My favorite part is where Henry falls, and Gregor leaps and is caught by Ares. I love how mysterious it is.
I hope Suzanne collins makes more books like this one!!!!!
